Ramatu also revealed her mother and brother refused to loan her money to start the business.

“I was taught how to make the local sweets (Charbin mallam) by my aunt. After I had a divorce with my husband, I decided to learn something, which I did from my aunty. I begged my mother and brother money to start up the business but they both refused to assist me. So I decided to sell up my properties and invest hugely in the business.” Ramatu told Cliqq TV.

Today, Ramatu makes more money from the business than her aunt who taught her.
